I can't see Randle doing well at the small forward position. I also don't see Aldridge leaving what they have going on in Portland and Vucevic will be making a lot more than 8 mil a year. Reggie Jackson is solid though

I think randle can play SF he's was improving on his outside shot and he's really athletic he can put the ball on the floor bro...

Please don't try to turn our prized draft pick into another position! The kid is a PF. Let him try to get better there instead of trying to get him to become something totally different. I thought Vuvevic or however you spell his name signed an extension?

Hell yeah he is! Would have been a great addition if it were possible.

I think on day 1 we should put in an offer for Kawhi Leonard! Then look at the top unrestricted free agents out there:

Group A

Rondo, & Gasol

Group B

D. Jordan, Dragic & B. Lopez(if he opts out)

...It's going to be a pretty weak free agency class.

Dragic is one of the most efficient PGs around the rim and brings a lot of intelligence on the court. if we could somehow swing dragic for a cheaper contract compared to what rondo wants, draggic will be the best value and all around player (FTs and FG%)... to be completely honest, I don't see that Kawhi is worth max 15mil money. I peg him around 10mil just because he doesn't bring much value outside of the playoffs. unfortunately though, spurs will likely match anything so kawhi won't be going anywhere I don't think. wesley matthews is still my man. I don't know why no one talks about Robin Lopez but IMO he is the better of the two lopez bro's. he's never injured, he brings HARD defense and most importantly he's ultra efficient. He's wonderful free-throw shooter and averages +55% in the field. great all around player in my opinion that could be had around 8-9 mil (currently on a 5mil contract) as opposed to max money of Marc Gasol or Greg Monroe, he's VALUE

acquire those guys via free ageny and move Swaggy/hill for some gosh darn role players. lakers ignore role players but they are so needed in this day and age. gerald green?? great player. even draft picks, anything as long as it is VALUE. role players are the glue to the superstars. nick collision is the type of guy i love (UFA)...

i was overly ambitious before in my offseason plans but this is realistic i think. aside from some nice glue players i'd love this squad...and then when kobe comes off the book there is a team that would attract big names.

dragic/lin

Kobe/clarkson

W. Mathews/ Green

Randle/ Ed Davis

R. Lopez/ Nick collison

I like your thinking. But I can't see that team winning a championship.

What does a writer for the Bulls know of Love's intentions. The only thing he's ever said is that he would resign with the Cavs of traded there, which he was. He's be a welcome addition, but I'll believe it when I see it.

I doubt we get love. But let's say we do. Do we roll with a Randle Love front court?

nah, I don't see Love as a target anymore. They might try to go for Aldrige, Hibbert, Al Jefferson, etc...

I think they might actually have a shot at Greg Monroe for the center spot; Rondo for the point, and either Thaddeus Young or Loul Deng at the SF.

Wouldn't be bad a group for Kobe's last year (or 2)

starters: Rondo, Kobe, T.Young, Randle, Monroe

bench: Lin, SwaggyP, ???, Hill, Davis

daydreamin, lol

Monroe plays pf, and he's definitely not a rim protector. If you look at his stats, he has no blocks, not one so far.

I think who Lakers go after in FA, will depend on where they finish in the standings. If they keep their pick at top 5, than I see them drafting one of the centers or trading picks for young talent. Like say MCW and Embiid, the sixers don't seem to know what they want to do.

Nah that ain't bad at all. Although I'm not sure how I feel about Thad Young at the 3. We need Draymond Green some how. lol

I say hell no. If we did sign Love I think we should trade Randle.

I say keep Randle and try to sign either Rondo, Leonard or Gasol. Preferably the youngest.
